The gardens are beautiful and looked after very well. You need to be able to walk a distance and if you go down to the lake it's a bit of a hill climb back. Well worth the effort. Great tea rooms to have a cup of tea afterwards

A glorious garden with a beach! We've been coming here for years, first with our children, now with our grandchildren. This is a stunning place. A great place for children too...

The weather was showery when myself and teenage son visited but this did not distract from our enjoyment. There were plenty of large plants and trees to shelter you from the rain. Although not on the scale of some of the other gardens e.g Heligan it is beautifully and very cleverly laid out so you can take different paths without... More

The gardens were stunning. There are a few play areas for the children to find hidden away, the bear trail was enjoyed by the little one. The views were superb. The beach has a small place to grab some ice cream or a snack and although small is safe, and pebbles were great for skimming. Parking was free but the... More

Good place to visit if you have time to spare but nothing extraordinary. Nice walk ending at the beach with small cafe. Main cafe was good serving good cream tea.

Lovely gardens....lots of colour and areas to explore. A great family day out. The bamboo section was really impressive as was the giant rhubarb. The ice cream break on the pebble beach at half way was most welcome and the hut served as a makeshift shelter when we had a short sharp shower.

I first came here around 18 years ago with my mum and wanted to revisit with my children when we came to Cornwall for the week. It didn't disappoint. The children loved darting up and down the many paths and playing in the play area. We didn't eat in the cafe as we meandered down to the beach and had... More
